Scientific Forecaster Discussion
Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne Florida
818 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014
Discussion...a weak cool front is currently pushing southward
into South Florida this evening. North to northeast winds have
increased behind the front and also with the East Coast sea
breeze that pushed west through the interior. However wind speeds
should decrease and become more northerly over land areas past
midnight. Drier air behind the front to keep rain chances out of
the forecast for the rest of the night. However may still see a
few showers continue to develop over the Gulf Stream waters of the
Treasure Coast late tonight as low level northeast flow increases
over this region. High level cloud cover will remain the greatest
across Okeechobee County and the Treasure Coast with mostly clear
skies expected from the Orlando area northward. Lows will range
from the upper 50s northwest of the I-4 corridor and middle/upper 60s
along the coast south of the cape.
Aviation...VFR conds expected next 24 hours.
Marine...increasing north to northeast winds behind the front up
to 15 to 20 knots offshore will produce choppy seas up to 6 feet
over the Gulf Stream later tonight. Will maintain small craft
exercise caution headlines for this portion of the waters.
